Le signal utilisé en acoustique sous-marine est transposé en musique dans ce film expérimental qui explore les ondes sonores qui nous entourent. Ondes, vent, vibrations, signal: l'invisible se matérialise, dans une rencontre privilégiée entre la science et l'art.
A short experimental film made around signal transpositions, featuring an original score inspired by scientific data.
First transposition: An underwater acoustic sonar was used to map a part of St-Lawrence River's sea floor. This data was then interpreted by two musicians as if it were a music partition. Piano and cello become sand, rocks and algae, as we discover the seascape.
Second signal transposition: a series of soundscapes was recorded on field, near the spot were the data used by the musicians were collected. These sound files' spectrogram and waeform analysis were then animated to make visual representations of sound, sometimes woven into HD image, sometimes taking the entire sceen.
We perceive our environment through our senses, which are now influenced by digital interface. I'm looking for poetry and experience, but I can't escape what I know of the world. I can only hope that by sharing the beauty in it, I can touch and appeal to sensitivity and help awaken the desire to protect what's left of nature.
